Ford's new Police Interceptors led the pack in recent testing conducted by the Michigan State Police. The Police Interceptor sedan equipped with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine topped the competition in 0-60 mph, 0-80 mph and 0-100 mph acceleration.
"This year's testing by the Michigan State Police once again proves Ford Police Interceptors are industry leaders, offering government agencies the desired combination of capability, technology and long-lasting value," said Lisa Teed, Marketing manager for the Ford Police Interceptor program.
"We are very proud of the test results," said Bill Gubing, Ford Police Interceptor chief engineer. "During post-event inspection, the vehicles show proof of purpose-built durability," he adds. "The status of the tires and brake pads still show useful life, and are ready for more grueling testing."
Ford Police Interceptor sedan and utility vehicles recently earned top safety ratings in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration New Car Assessment Program testing, which combines vehicle performance in frontal and side-impact crash tests and resistance to rollover.
